Kim Kardashian West dethroned Texas native Beyonce as Queen of Instagram on Monday.

Tech Insider released the official figures and confirmed that Kim K’s 44,005,604 followers indeed surpassed Beyonce’s 43,935,648.

A close examination of the two accounts also revealed that while the two women post similar content (namely – selfies and cute photos of their daughters), Kardashian West posts with a higher frequency than Beyonce, according to Tech Insider.

Additionally, the publication noted that Kardashian West’s photo captions are often longer and more personal, while Beyonce keeps her captions short and sweet, or sometimes forgoes them entirely.

The Kardashian/Jenner clan have a thing for ruling the square-shaped photo app. This summer, Kendall Jenner beat out Kardashian West for most liked ‘gram. Her heart hair selfie surpassed Kim and Kanye’s wedding photo with over 3 million likes in June.

Kardashian West is now triumphant again, but she might not be reigning Instagram for long – pop star Taylor Swift is currently boasting 43,533,226 followers.
